I am having a heck of a time with this vise. It is one of those quick release types that when you turn the handle two times you can just pull the vise open.
My problem is that the vise will close but will no longer open when I turn the handle. Pictures are enclosed showing the mechanism. The design is simple but to save my life, I cant figure out what is wrong. I have taken it apart and cleaned it, looked for damage etc but I just don’t have the knowledge to determine what is wrong.
If anyone has had any similar experiences, please share. The vise is about 5 years old, I have treated it fairly well and hope to get more years out of it as it was not cheap. I got this from Lee Valley.
